Kinzinger questions administration in Benghazi affair

Kevin Caufield
Staff Writer

In case you missed it, U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) appeared on “Meet the Press” Sunday and weighed in on the Obama Administration’s Benghazi scandal. Kinzinger said he had two main questions he wanted answers to, adding that he wasn’t looking to “bring anyone down.”

His first question was in regard to who changed the talking points used by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, who in the days after the Benghazi attack told the public the attacks were not terrorist-related and were instead conducted in response to an Internet video.

Secondly, Kinzinger questioned the Obama Administration’s decision to not send military aid to help the four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens.

“As a military pilot, we’re taught in survival training to just know that your country will move heaven and Earth to come get you and it appears in this case the country didn’t move heaven, nor Earth, and the administration says, ‘well, we had seven hours, we couldn’t have made it in time,’ and to me, that’s irrelevant. What matters is, you didn’t know a second attack was coming — why did you not pull out all the stops to get assets in place to save those four men or prevent any future attack that could be happening?”
